It’s really flipping good.
Drybar Studio City

What: George Abou-Daoud (Bowery, District) gets the littlest wine bar that could into the gelato game. Five bucks gets you two scoops of flavors like Earl Grey, Fernet Branca Menthe with chocolate chip, roasted almond and fig, and butter brown sugar with candied bacon.
Why: Pairings such as orange blossom gelato with a glass of 2005 Oremus Tokaji Late Harvest port.

Where: 5940 Sunset Blvd., at Tamarind Ave., Hollywood.
RealRyder Cycling Studio
What: Break from your recent tour du couch and hop on one of the surprisingly bendy bikes to tighten your upper and lower body. The bikes’ frames turn, tilt, and lean to simulate riding outdoors without all the traffic, people, and distractions.
Why: This stationary bike burns 20 percent more calories than traditional indoor spinning.
